Hello from Cambodia!

I just wanted to write to say thank you again for the donations you’ve made to help support the food program here at M’Lop Tapang. With your help we continue to be able to provide more than 500 hot meals a day to children and youth in education and training programs.

Being able to provide children in our programs with healthy meals is such an important part of what we do. The problem of insufficient nutrition is widespread in Cambodia. Ten percent of Cambodian children under the age of 5 are acutely malnourished, 32 percent are considered stunted and 24 percent are underweight. Stunted children face long-term physical and mental problems that interfere with education and employment.

Your donations help to ensure that we can provide hot meals to children like 11 year old Chan Mao (name changed for confidentiality), one of the newest children in classes at our Education Center. Chan had stopped going to public school a few years ago because his family could not afford to send him to study. The young boy is now in the Grade 2 classroom at our Education Center. Like for all the other children in classes at our Education Center, the goal is that Chan Mao will be able to catch up with his studies and soon be reintegrated back into the local public school system at a grade level suitable for his age.

For children like Chan, the meals that we provide at M’Lop Tapang are often the most substantial they will have all day. Although not fancy, the meals are healthy and nutritious and allow the students to concentrate on their studies instead of worrying about having an empty stomach.

From all of us here at M’Lop Tapang, thank you again for your generosity and joining s to help vulnerable Cambodian children and youth in need.

Sincerely,

Eve Saosarin,
Director, M’Lop Tapang

Toys for children
Toys for children

Hello from Cambodia!

I just wanted to thank you again for your donation towards providing toys for children.

Thanks to you we were able to provide more than 100 toys to disadvantaged children. It was so fun to distribute them as these children all come for poor families and so excited to get toys of their own. As an added bonus, you may remember that these toys are all made by mothers in our Home Based Production Program so they were able to earn a little extra income by making the items.

Thank you again for your support.

All the best,

Eve Saosarin
Director, M’Lop Tapang

On behalf of everyone here at M’Lop Tapang in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, I wanted to thank you again for your donations and support.


With your help we continue to be able to help vulnerable children and families in the local community; children like 15 year old Chenda (name changed for confidentiality)


Chenda was born to a poor family in a rural province. When he was younger his family moved around several times as his parents looked for work in factories. He dropped out of school in Grade 4 when his family was living in Phnom Penh and spent most of his time with a group of children and youth that were using drugs. Last year he and a friend decided to run away and found a ride to Sihanoukville.


When he arrived in Sihanoukville he didn’t have a place to stay or money to buy food, so like many runaway children he begged for food during the day and slept on the beach at night. It was on a local beach that he met one of M’Lop Tapang’s trained ChildSafe beach sellers who gave him some food and told him about M’Lop Tapang. He sat with her while she phoned our 24-Houtline to ask the staff to come and meet him.


Chenda is now staying at our 24-hour Drop-In Center and has started attending classes at the MT Education Center. For now he seems very committed to studying hard and tells us that in the future he wants to work in an office.
Again, from all of us here at M’Lop Tapang, thank you for your support.


Sincerely,
Eve Saosarin
Director, M’Lop Tapang
